Welcome to my world of art!
My name is Denni Kopelan, and I've been a passionate creator for as long as I can remember. However, it was during my high school years that my artistic journey truly began to take shape, thanks to an incredible art teacher who inspired and mentored me. Their guidance led me to pursue my studies at Tyler School of Fine Arts, a prestigious institution affiliated with Temple University in Philadelphia.
One of the most formative experiences of my artistic education was spending my junior year abroad at Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy. Immersed in the rich history and artistic heritage of Rome, I was captivated by the cultural nuances that influenced my work. After graduating, I made the bold decision to return to Italy and surround myself with the Italian way of life for the next five years. During this time, I had the honor of studying under the tutelage of Augusto Rinocchi, a renowned Italian artist and painting professor at the esteemed Academia de Belli Arte in Rome.
In recent years, I've been exploring the exciting world of mixed media, experimenting with different mediums and textures to create unique and captivating artworks. In fact, I recently completed a commissioned mixed media painting that was installed at Slay Italian, a renowned restaurant in Manhattan Beach.
I'm constantly pushing the boundaries of my artistic expression, seeking new ways to connect with my audience and convey my vision through my art. I'm thrilled to share my artistic journey with you, and I can't wait to see where it takes me next. Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure!
